Many businesses require vehicle access to a workshop, shipping and receiving bay, or garage. To facilitate this, there are several types of commercial garage doors. Durbin Garage Doors, the premier garage door installation and repair service in the St. Louis and St. Charles County area, will help you find the one that suits your needs. Based in Wentzville, MO, this business has been installing doors from high-caliber brands like Clopay and Doorlink for almost 30 years.
Here are some of the most common types of commercial garage doors:
- Sliding Door: Usually made of a single panel — often wood — this door moves to the side rather than upward. Sliding doors are the oldest and least expensive type of commercial garage door but can be very heavy and difficult to operate unless automated.
- One-Piece Door: This type of garage door also has a single panel, but it opens by swinging out and overhead. Its outward swing occurs at least in part outside the garage, so vehicles must stop several feet away from the door to avoid being struck when it is opened.
- Roll-Up Door: This type of door is made of corrugated steel, aluminum, or fiberglass, with a spring inside the roller mechanism for easy opening. It rolls into a compact spool shape when opened. It is easy to operate and can be automated, and its corrugated material provides strength. However, this kind of door is not easy to insulate.
- Sectional Door: The most common type of commercial garage door in the U.S., this door has several panels that allow it to bend as it rises up and out of the way. It is convenient, inexpensive, and easy to operate manually or automatically.
